R.C. knew our family's meats would sell, despite the Depression... people needed cheering up, something new and exciting to try. So he loaded up his truck, and took to the local roads. It wasn't long before folks were coming to him.
R.C. taught his sons, Bob and Jim, how to select meats for the right combination of leanness and tenderness... the secrets of blending spices and curing... all the procedures for preparing quality smoked meats. He also showed them how to get the Applewood smoking fires just right, and how to keep them that way.
